So happy to have a blog published in ADDitude this month!  This one is about a special Mommy and Me teacher, Miss Ellie, who gave me the gift of hope.  While I was tearing my hair out over my child’s hyperactivity, Miss Ellie found the treasure underneath it all.  A huge shout-out during ADHD Awareness Month for all the teachers who have believed in our children and made a difference in their lives! To read the blog, see link in bio.

I loved going back in time with my father to the days before all our smart technology existed. A time when family gathered around the radio for entertainment, and a little boy dreamed of going into the motion pictures.

“…It’s exhausting, right? Poor impulse control was, for me, the hardest part of parenting an ADHD child. Instead of disciplining Lee for urges her brain couldn’t avoid, I learned over time to talk to her about the feelings that led to the impulse. We discussed ways she could gain better control by looking at the consequences before an overwhelming desire took her down...” https://jennifergaysummers.com/a-lack-of-impulse-control-on-a-saturday-morning/ #impulsecontrol
